WAYNE – As summer camps continue to see changes, so will the fall football schedule for Wayne State College as they’ll play one game less starting the weekend after Labor Day.

According to social media accounts of Wayne State College athletics, the Wildcat football schedule will see a few changes including their season-opening kickoff.

John McMenamin will now open his first year as the football head coach on Saturday, September 12 at Bemidji State. Other games in September will include north division opponents of hosting Minot State on Saturday, September 19 and visiting Minnesota Duluth on Saturday, September 26.

WSC will only host two south division opponents in the month of October on Saturday, October 3 against Winona State and Saturday, October 17 hosting Augustana. Road games will include Minnesota State-Mankato (10/10), Southwest Minnesota State (10/24) and Upper Iowa (10/31).

Wayne State College will close out the regular season entertaining Sioux Falls on Saturday, November 7 and hosting University of Mary on Saturday, November 14 (original season-opening opponent).

Game times and other information will be announced at a later date.


Wayne State football staff also updated their summer camps schedule in late May.

Two sections of the high school eight/nine-man team camps will be held with the first being Sunday, July 19 – Tuesday, July 21 and the second from Thursday, July 23 – Saturday, July 25. Check-in will take place from noon until 2 p.m. on the first day of each camp as cost per overnight camper is $150 while commuter campers will be charged $120.

Another pair of 2020 Elite Prospect Camps will also take place in the month of July for those entering 9-12 grade. Cost is $55 to attend on either Saturday, July 18 or Sunday, July 26.

The 2020 Young Cats Camp is scheduled for Monday, July 27 for youth entering second through eighth grade. The camp will last from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Memorial Stadium and cost to attend is $25.

Camp attendees will need football cleats or any athletic shoes, socks, shorts, a t-shirt and for some camps shoulder pads including jersey and pants with leg pads, a helmet and mouth piece as well as any injury prevention items if needed.

As an added safeguard, each camp will offer registration protection insurance. For an additional fee, this insurance refunds your full registration fee if the camp is held but you cannot attend or must leave early due to a covered injury or illness which includes COVID-19. Details can be found under the WSC football ‘Camps’ tab at wscwildcats.com.
